Day 8 synopsis:

Blessed is the woman of prayer.

She will live in communion with God and her brothers and sisters.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  (New International Version)

“Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.”  (The Message)

At one of the most lonesome times in my life I dedicated my days to prayer.  I did so by starting a prayer journal.  I use one page for each day.  At the top I wrote things I was grateful for and wanted to thank God for.  And then I listed people / circumstances I wanted to pray about.

Of all the thoughts shared in this Beatitudes study, and if I could leave one thought with you it would be the importance of prayer.  I was chatting with someone recently about a struggle… and I wished I could offer words of wisdom, consolation, SOMETHING… and I said “I don’t know what to say or do to help… except to pray.  That’s what I can do.”

In fact, prayer has become so important to me that not only do I pray every day I spend the first day of each month dedicated to prayer.  And while I may have to go to work and function outside of the home that day – my mind frame stays focused on prayer.  My prayers are very informal… I pray while I’m driving, walking, cleaning up the office… I typically will have worship music on and I talk to God like He’s in the room.  It’s not a super formal thing for me unless I want it to be.  And for that purpose I’ve set up a space in my home specifically for the purpose of having a prayer closet… and it’s actually IN my closet.

Starting early January I’m going to do be joining a friend in her 21 Days of Prayer event that she’s doing via Facebook Live videos…. wanna join me there?

Blessed is the woman of prayer.

She will live in communion with God and her brothers and sisters.
